I tried to authenticate with my normal iOS User "Lars Düwel" but always got the error "wrong credentials". With another account i created called "Test" it worked without problem and a connection could be established.
with "iOS User" do you mean osx user?
besides that, as far as I know you can't have a space in an account name, which is the one you use to login, you can have a space in the user name but that is not used in login process.
I tried to reproduce this issue, but when I tried to create a user with "ü", I get an error saying I can't have a especial character in user name.
Hi Enzo, i will check it tomorrow when iam at work again what name i exactly had.
Hello Lars, thank you for taking the time to file this. I think there may be an issue when trying to connect with an OS X account's full name if it contains characters outside of the basic Latin script.
Each OS X account has an account name and a full name. The account name is the one that is used for the home folder and can not have "special" characters in it (as Enzo said). The full name is the one that you see on the menu bar, and can have "special" characters. During my testing, I have found that both can be used for login credentials, although the full name (user name) should not be used in the login process as Enzo said.
After some shallow connection testing, here are my findings:
Account name: "Ben"
Full name: "Benjamin Beckley"
Account name: "aeiou"
Full name: "ÄËÏÖÜ"
This does not work due to invalid credentials
What we can take from this is pretty straightforward. Spaces in a full name can be used, and that "ÄËÏÖÜ" as a full name does not work - most likely due to the "special" characters.
this is Correct Ben, now Im able to reproduce.
So I made some research into this, and ssh does not allow especial characters. You can check in Sharing, when you enable the remote login, you'll see something like this:
To log in to this computer remotely, type "ssh email@example.com".
You will notice the command does not include ü because it was replaced with u.
So now if you go to Visual Studio connection flow and type the given user name, you'll be able to login.
Please let me know if you were able to do it.
Hi Enzo, Hi Ben,
thanks for the fast response, you are right. If i use the username instead of the fullname to login everything works seamlessly. I wasn't aware of the fact that the full name and username differs.
